June 8th, 2012 by Stuart Miller Comments

A very busy week when it comes to the chart thanks to the weather calming down and also 2 of the biggest films of the year being released in the same week, with this in mind it will come as no surprise that last week’s number 1 Men in Black 3 couldn’t hold on to the top spot for more than a week.

4 new films graced this week’s chart, first of is a surprise entry at number 9 in the form of the Ken Loach drama The Angel’s Shame, doing better, despite it being panned by critics, is Top Cat which forced its way into the number 7 spot. The second highest new entry went to Snow White and the Huntsman that went into the number 2 spot despite it having 2 extra days on the number 1 film- which will come as no surprise to anybody – is Prometheus.

10. Moonrise Kingdom – £210.804 – £724.870
9. The Angels Share(NE) – £256.446
8. American Pie: The Reunion – £267.682 – £16.396.461
7. Top Cat(NE) – £457.287
6. What to Expect When you’re Expecting – £633.935 – £1.983.332
